Upcoming: Oddworld – Stranger’s Wrath
New ‘n tasty mobile edition coming soon
A port of original Xbox launch title Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is coming soon to mobile. GamerHub released an interview with series created Lorne Lanning detailing some behind-the-scenes information of the upcoming port.
While Stranger’s Wrath is the only mobile port mentioned by name in this video, significant amounts of video footage from the upcoming Oddworld: New ‘N Tasty are included for some reason. It’s unclear from this video if that footage represents a mobile port currently in development, or if it was simply included by mistake. Either way, considering New ‘N Tasty will be launched for every major computer OS, PS4, and Wii U, a mobile port is definitely not outside the realm of possibility.
Both of these upcoming games look excellent from the above footage. Details of the iOS porting are unclear at this time – the video is mainly about the Android version on the Nvidia Shield platform. However, iOS ports are mentioned, as well as compatibility with many different controllers. Here’s hoping that means MFi controllers for iOS.
The only real negative I can see from the video is the pride with which Lanning states Stranger’s Wrath will run at 30 frames per second. He says “a solid 30 fps” that like it’s a good thing. In reality, 30fps is nowhere near good for a modern game release. The latest mobile GPUs are more than capable of pushing out 60fps – a much more pleasant and fluid gaming experience. Hopefully the 30fps was in reference to the somewhat weaker Nvidia Shield hardware. Either way, we’ll find out soon enough.
